Went to the Dr's Tuesday 
Made my knee worse new meds not working to good.
Spent today on the couch with ice on my knees.
Had to use a walking stick to go out and get a coffee this morning.
Got help at the mill the next 2 days
I hope I feel better in the morning.

Having a tough week. 
Not getting around to good.
Had someone cancell an order 3/4 done.
Hit a nice buck in velvet in Newport this morning.
Busted the grill and front of the truck.
On a good note sold 13 slabs this week. 
Made a connection with a young gall that does beautiful wood burning.
Going to mill her up some live edge basswood when I have some help.
Trying to stay positive but it hard when I can't move very well :(

Thinking of you down here in Virginia.  Stay focused on getting the weight off so they can get to your knees, the knee surgery is just amazing stuff.  I'd even suggest getting some professional help on the weight loss if that's something you could make happen.

One second, that's all you have to get through, then repeat. It will become routine. I am speaking from experience. You can pull this off.

Things didn't get this way all at once and it will take time to get better, keep at it doing what you can without making the knee worse. Try to find ways to ways to keep yourself mobile and relive stress on your knee.

Ideas?

Use your strong points to your advantage, from reading your posts I'm always impressed with your ambition you seem to have the ability to market product and create good customer relations, perhaps you could hire some help with producing the product and free up time to market and sell.

Better yet get the gals to work at the sawmill, probably work harder and do a better job!

My grandfather said he never really made any money until he had his hernia operation because it forced him to work with his head rather than his back.

When you feel like you are going through “the hot place” keep moving! Ole Scratch is just waiting for folks to give up.  That’s when he gets us!  

Sorry you are having a hard time.  Wish I were closer, young gals around my sawmill are mostly just lost....

I have worked with some ladies before.
They have all been hard workers.
My helper on the sawmill this summer is my 14 y/o niece!
She's a better helper than a lot of guys I've had on the other side of the mill in the past!  ;)

Stacking lumber.


 
Shoveling sawdust.


 
And then hop in the JD and bring me another log.  :)

Couldn't do anything this weekend couldn't find any help.
This week I'm trying a new guy for 3 days.
I got folks wanting their mill orders and I'm 6 to 8 cords behind on firewood.
I can split it but I'm not touching a chain saw when you can't move.
Hopefully things work out this week :)
I'm keeping a good outlook.
